Baking Buns Method:

For baking buns, take all-purpose flour into a large bowl and add salt, sugar, mixed Italian herbs and yeast powder in it. Mix it well with your hands. Now add butter and mix it in the flour. Rub the flour between your palms so that butter can easily be mixed with it. Add warm water and mix well to knead soft and non-sticky dough. Cover it with the cling sheet or with a wet cloth. Keep aside at least for an hour or till dough rises to double its quantity.

Now make small balls and place them on a greased baking tray. Again keep them aside for 30 minutes. Balls will increase in size. Preheat oven to 347 F or 175 C, glaze the buns with egg wash (beaten egg yolk) and also sprinkle sesame seeds over them. Put them inside the oven at least for 40 minutes. Take them out once they are golden brown in color. Brush the top with melted butter. Soft and fresh buns with mixed Italian herbs are ready to serve with tea or with breakfast.
